As a nurse who worked in the gynaecology service of our regional hospital, and as a woman, I cannot overemphasize the importance of women’s healthcare. 

Women wear so many different hats (wife, mom, sister, daughter, coworker) and the reality is, we are constantly faced with new pressures and responsibilities. We are so busy juggling our various hats that we often put our own healthcare at the bottom of our “to do” lists. Which is exactly the last thing that should happen!

Although it can be tricky trying to balance work, healthy living, family and a social life, I find it comforting to know we all go through the same things.

Because we are all in this together, sharing our knowledge and experiences with each other is a powerful way to learn about our health and well-being.  So, with that in mind, I thought it would be helpful to all of us, to put together a few “things-to-know” facts about women’s health and hopefully, these facts will help get the conversation started.

Four Important Women’s Health Facts: 

1.) Many of us feel stressed from time to time, but did you know routine stress can take a toll on your body? If you’ve been having trouble with your digestion, frequent headaches, sleeplessness or just feeling irritable, stress may be the culprit. Assess your day-to-day routine to see if there are things you can do to reduce your stress levels, like carving out time that’s just for you or making a conscious choice to say “no” when you really don’t have the time for a new task.

2.)  For many of us, hair represents a big part of our personal identity, but as you get older, you might find your hair is getting weaker. To help maintain the health of your hair, try a supplement like Priorin. Named the world’s best-selling nonprescription hair and beauty supplement in 2017, Priorin can help you achieve visibly fuller and stronger hair in as early as 12 weeks, so you can look and feel great.

3.)  Did you know the common yeast infection is actually caused by some of the organisms present in the vagina? A weak immune system, pregnancy and oral birth-control pills are a few things that make women more prone to yeast infections (read more here). Though it might be common, it shouldn’t be left untreated. Canesten’s CanesOral Combi-Pak is a single-dose oral treatment that you can take any time, anywhere and the external cream gives you fast relief of itching and burning.

4.)  One of the most basic pillars of your self-care is health monitoring and talking to your doctor about which tests and exams you will need at each new stage of life. Pap smears, breast exams, skin checks, dental check-ups and eye exams are examples of basic tests you should talk to your doctor about. 
If I went back in time to share a tip with my younger self, it would be to practice more self-care, because a physically and emotionally healthy me, is a happier and more productive me.
If you could go back in time and share one healthy-living tip with a younger you, what would it be?

  1. Very much in favour of taking control of your health. Women are pretty good at this but at the same time so busy often that they forget self care or put it low on their list of priorities. It’s vital to remember to take care of yourself. We had Priorin here this year and used it. Really works well.
